Welcome to NATS release
This repository contains the nats-release source code. This is NATS deployed as a BOSH release. See the BOSH documentation for more information on BOSH.
As part of a platform-wide initiative across Cloud Foundry we are working toward
securing all internal traffic using TLS. NATS servers can support either TLS or
plaint-text traffic, but not both at the same time.
To give clients time to upgrade we are providing two NATS jobs that can be
colocated: a plain-text one (
nats) and a TLS one (
NOTE: NATS does not use a standard TLS over TCP handshake. There is an initial INFO handshake, which is via plain-text. If both the client and the server agree in this handshake to use TLS then the connection is upgraded. If either of the client or server expects to use TLS but its peer does not then they will refuse to connect to avoid downgrade attacks.
NATS serving plain-text traffic. This job will be removed when all Cloud Foundry NATS clients are upgraded to use TLS.

The smoke tests errand run a simple check that NATS is accessible and relaying messages properly. It will try to use all configured server connections.
example-manifests folder we have an example of deployment of
nats tls with the smoke test.
Also, there is an ops file called
enable_nats_tl_for_cf.yml which can be used
nats-tls jobs with the
smoke-test errand to the CF
